On arrival to this splendid property there is a sense of ease, peace and relaxation thanks to the commanding views across the sweep of Wexford coastline and the Saltee Islands beyond. The house welcomes you in with a stone filled driveway and to the front of the house are flat grass areas ideal for family games of football, and a large parking area.

To the rear of the house, which is completely enclosed offering a safe boundary for children and pets, is further grass areas, raised vegetable beds, carefully selected planting suiting the coastal breeze and a generous garage with workspace. A pathway from the al-fresco dining patio area leads to the most exquisite stone built out building suiting a studio or home office.

Inside the exquisite features and finish are evident, with tasteful décor throughout. The large reception hallway offers a dual aspect along with much space to greet and meet visitors with French doors to guide your guests directly to the gardens. The focal point of the home is to the right with a spacious living, kitchen, dining area and utility. The owners have carefully considered a bird’s eye view with the addition of a formal dining room (sunroom) off the main kitchen area where the views open up to the landscape and the constant play of light and weather.

The five bedrooms are located left of the hallway offering total privacy. Three bedrooms are on the ground floor with a family bathroom and one bedroom is ensuite. Upstairs is the master suite with balcony on the west elevation where double doors open up and the views once again command attention directly facing onto Sigginstown Castle. The bathroom is just off the spacious landing with the study or indeed home office which could easily become an additional fifth bedroom if required.

The whole house is presented in turn-key condition with seamlessly blending spaces and is a rare opportunity to secure a property in this very special coastal location.
